Canon PIXMA MG6250 printer leaves ink on edge of paper

My newish Canon PIXMA MG6250 prints perfectly until it comes to the last centimetre, then it starts to make regular, clicking noises and when the paper comes out there is black ink on the edge of the paper, sometimes on both edges, usually on just one side, the long side. This is very annoying when I print edge-to-edge prints as I can't use the prints. It never does it with any other of the ink colour, only black. I have tried doing all the cleaning procedures, and tried with 3 different types of paper and tried changing the cartridge. Any suggestions welcome.

SOURCE: print alignment failed / have tried to rectify several times

It seems like it may be a hardware problem, but the best bet for you would be to reinstall the printer drivers. It should fix it,

SOURCE: changed the drum & ink cartridge in HL-1440-ink bleeds on edge

Hi there,

This problem is often caused by spilled toner. Open the printer, carefully remove the cartridge, and give it a few bursts of compressed air. Often running several pages or type through will also fix this. If it persists, replace the toner cartridge.

Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know for any clarifications.

No ink on print out from canon mg6150, please help

how much ink is in the ink Cartridges?
have you changed the ink cartridge recently ?
You may need to clean the print head.

seems to look like it may be a manual procedure with the mg6150 rather than a computer setting in the printer properties. Look under properties to see if there is a computer generated head clean .

I'm trying to print wedding invitations on my Canon MP460. I'm using a cardstock thickness of paper and have set the ink levels for "Other Photo Paper" on my Mac. The paper has been going through...

Sounds like the ink isn't having time to dry and is rubbing along paper.

Paper may be too thick. If it prints OK on normal paper (test first) but not on thick card, then it doesn't support thick paper settings.

Canon PIXMA MX700 printhead immediately coated with ink, smudges

It's likely that the foam pads that the print head rests on when the printer is not in use are saturated with ink. They're to the right as you look into the printer: a rectangular one for black ink and a square one for the colored ink. If you power the printer off and back on, with the cover open, you'll see where the printhead goes to rest.

The pads aren't easy to get at, but you can blot them with a paper towel. Gummy, half-dried ink dissolves in rubbing alcohol, and you can soak a paper towel or a cotton ball with alcohol and wipe down the area. I've had good luck soaking the pads with alcohol, then blotting them dry with a rag.
